I can't speak to your specific scenario, but I've found RHEL 3 to have
incrementally better hardware support than RHL 9. RHEL 3 hardware support
seems to be closer to Fedora Core 1 quality. Case in point: my broadcom
chipset Gigabit ethernet does not work at all in RHL 9 but works like a
champ in RHEL 3 (or a reasonable facsimile thereof).
I have a bunch of these HP/Compaq d530u desktops out there running Red Hat
Linux 9 where I've had
to install a Realtek-based ethernet card to get the box on the network.
As I upgrade these to CentOS (the RHEL clone I alluded to) I remove the
Realtek card and move the patch cable over to the build-in broadcom
gigabit ethernet adapter.
